When you put your inserts in to allow them to sit for 24 hours? I finished up my arrows last night about ten and my bow will be ready about three could I go ahead and start shooting or do I have to wait?

Never used the easton stuff. I usually use a 2 part marine epoxy on mine. If you heat it up it literally melts and evaporates so i dont need to clean up a mess and easy to get inserts out. I usually can start shooting in under 15 minutes. Drys quickly.

I used the epoxy/hardener that came with the arrows and inserts. (easton arrows)
Yeah, that stuff is the pits - 24 hr waiting period. We use several types of glue that dries under 15 minutes, some dry before you can nock the arrow.

If the instructions say to wait I would wait, otherwise you'll be trying to dig money out of your target. I use Gorilla glue and they are done very fast and ready to go. I know it doesnt help you now but maybe in the future. Most of the pro shops that sell the Easton arrows dont use the glue that comes with them. I suggest you try something else next time. :)

I would think you would be alright.That is all i use on my arrows and i would think the temperature the arrows are in would make a huge difference in the curing time of the epoxy.

These were my first arrows to fletch and put the inserts in so for future notice I will take the advise given. Thanks for your help keep the opinions coming on to as if you think I could go ahead and use them or not. Thanks

youll be fine shooting them before. ive used that same epoxy on st axis arrows and i shot them in same amount of time period you would be and had no problems. you have nothing to worry about. next time use 5 min. epoxy and you wont have to wait but about 20 mins. before you can shoot them.
